This year we will be holding the event at the Congressional Cemetary, one of the most unique event places in DC! Located a few blocks from the Potomac Ave Metro, off the blue/orange/silver lines. This is a family event and one of the biggest of the year. We will have delicious food, including veggie options, as well as an assortment of beverages. A variety of lawn games and activities will be held throughout the duration of the event.
About the cemetery:
"Created in 1807, Congressional Cemetery is, despite its name, a privately owned 35-acre tract, rising at the exact point in Southeast Washington, D.C., where the city sloughs off its urban grid and bristles up into forested hills. Standing at the cemetery’s summit, you can look down on the Anacostia River and, across the river, to the rumpled beech and maple woodlands of Fort Dupont Park.
Cemeteries, for most of us 21st-century citizens, are strictly utilitarian places. We come, we go, as quickly as propriety allows. By contrast, many of the great garden cemeteries of the 19th century were conceived by landscape architects steeped in Romanticism. The undulating paths are richly varied woodlands were designed to attract the eye and the visitor. And indeed, the people who flocked there by the thousands were only rarely in a mood to mourn. Lovers wooed along the shaded lanes; families, gaily dressed and giddy at escaping the city’s miasma, dragged blankets and picnic baskets after them. Weddings happened here, concerts, sporting events. Hard as it is to believe now, cemeteries were America’s first parks."
